Located in Kyiv, Ukraine, on the banks of the Dnieper River, the 32nd Apartment was finished in 2015 by 32nd Apartment In Kyiv, Ukraine, and it is inhabited by a young couple. It boasts a cozy and modern interior design characterized by crisp white walls, raw finishes, plenty of glass elements and an unhindered flow of natural light.
The apartment also comprises a large dining table, a 13-foot ceiling lamp and a 322-square foot rusted wall, all of which give off a sense of contemporary elegance. The abode flaunts 2,690 square feet of living space, which is quite enough for a small family. The large dining table represents one of the apartment’s main highlights, as it measures 19.6 feet in length and offers great opportunities for working, cooking or playing.
From the architect:
This apartment for a young couple is located in one of the most picturesque sights of Kyiv, on slopes of Dnieper river. Light hits and fills the space from dawn till sunset offering splendid colour change on both sides of the window. This time architects decided to stick to the minimal urban loft which remains an unusual choice for family homes and suited rather for public spaces.
Design is charismatic and cosy, highly admired by loft true lovers. 30m2 of rusted wall, 6 m dining table, 4m ceiling lamp – all these elements have been naturally integrated into a 250m2 apartment.
Zoning has been executed with glass walls only keeping the space visually open, yet when necessary electrical curtains can help create a cosy and in a way theatrical effect to a specific part of the space. At first sight apartment seems inhabited due to infinite emptiness of white walls.
At the same time such unusual cleanness reveals small details and elements of this unique apartment. Giant 6 meters long dining table is an epicentre of communication among family members, serving as an ultimate meeting point for cooking, working and playing.
This apartment as a whole as well as each room reflects the state of mind and soul of people living in It – the supremacy of freedom, simplicity and joy.
